Three Ways to Update a Room Without Breaking the Bank


Custom designed furniture

If you’re looking to update a room in your house but not spend a ton of money on buying new furniture, floor coverings, accessories, and the like, there is a simple way to achieve a fresh new look while keeping the furniture you have and not breaking the bank. Something as simple as changing one thing can still make a big statement and change the whole feel of a room. Here are three ways you can do that.

Drapes and curtains
One of the easiest ways to update a room is to add or update your window treatments with curtains and drapes. Maybe you have thick heavy drapes but are looking for something new to let in a little more light and create an airy atmosphere. Getting new window drapes can either brighten up or darken a room, depending on the feel you want to create.

Paint a wall or the ceiling
If you already love your window treatments and furniture, you could opt to paint just one wall (or even the ceiling!) of your room. Not only will it change the dynamic of the room, but it creates more interest. If you want the wall to really pop, choose a contrasting color. A shade in the same color family will still create interest but will be much more subdued.

Designer wallcoverings
If you really want to make a big change to one or more of your walls, you might want to consider looking at designer wall coverings. There are a range of colors and materials for modern wall coverings to choose from here, so if you don’t know where to start you might want to enlist the help of your local interior designers. They’ll be able to help you figure out your options and create a custom look to suit your room. Local interior designers will also have an eye for creating the exact look you want.

Updating the feel and design of a room doesn’t have to take a lot of effort on your part. If you have an idea, run with it. There are few cosmetic designs that can’t be undone, but if you’re unsure of yourself having a designer by your side might be helpful. More like this blog.
